What I Thought I Knew But Didn't Know At All: Anger as a Tool

What I Thought I Knew But Didn't Know At All: Anger as a Tool

In high school and into my early twenties, I believed that publicly sharing your anger about injustices was the most direct way to enact change. Getting furiously angry about racism, sexism, homophobia and other injustices felt like the best way to make the world better. What I know now: In the 20 years since, I've been tasked (and sometimes just stubbornly tasked myself), with implementing changes at companies that improved equity and inclusion for employees.  What I learned from my failures and successes in those two decades: using anger as your main tool mostly back-fires.

Time Management and Neurotransmitters: A Sneak Peek into May's Workshop

Many of us are so overwhelmed with tasks and deadlines that we have no energy left for the creative side of our work.

But one important component I’d like to explore here is how to ask the feedback...

Self-Care and Summer Goals

  A common conversation topic at the end of every summer (especially in the Pacific Northwest) is whether or not we got to do the things we wanted to do, and that often leads to people talking about how they regret not getting more out of their summer. This is a shame because people also seem to equate summer with self-care, including getting much-needed rest and relaxation.
